I am on the canals here as much as possible, at least once a week. Was out today for a little fishing. No smells.
At times I am sure there may be a little smell from run off or whatever it may be, but nothing to talk about. As Robin said, this is Florida, Insects are part of being here. I have to tell you that Cape Coral and Lee County take an aggressive approach to keeping the population of insects at bay. I have not saw a moaquito in months, but once the rainy months get here so will the bugs.
Again as its been said, come on down for a visit and check us out for yourself. Its a great place to live.
